Enough Memory


iMore Question

I have no experience with Mac products.

I am thinking of buy a Mac Book Air for my wife with storage: 128GB flash.

She will use only for email and surfing.

I will install TeamViewer and MS Office onto the laptop.

Will 128GB of memory be enough?

Thanks for reading

Hi, please take a moment to join the forums so you can answer any questions as share your opinion and advice with others.

If your wife is only going to use a Mac for email and Word processing then 128GB will be more than enough.
However, as Macs are so good at linking with iPhone and iPads (as you'd expect) etc you'll soon find that it becomes a hub for music, video and pictures which 128gb may be fairly limiting.

Macs are also expensive so if she is purely using email and internet then have you considered an iPad with Word or equivalent app?

Welcome to iMore.

128GB should be sufficient for your wifes needs. If you should require additional storage further into the future you can add an external hard drive to store things so you can keep the MBA internal drive clear.
